For the first time ever I encountered a screen stating that they're doing maintenance. The background image was the Crunchyroll eye surrounded by rice and there were chopsticks above the rice.

Just saying.

The 520's are a pain esp. right when I signed up for an anime mem. I hope whoever's doing this gets hurt!

Hmm odd...
Final fantasy 14, Sony, xbox, and now crunchyroll....Something is really up. It seems someone is attacking things for Otakus yet it begs the question: Why hasn't Nintendo been attacked or are they next?

Now that you said it, it could happen.

I've had the 520 errors off and on. It's kinda frustrating. It also makes me glad I'm not a paying member anymore since there was no Black Friday offer. (No sale, no buy, period). Hopefully the issues get fixed soon.

This is what's killing off the Roku app as well right? I've been getting constant unable to connect to video errors for a few days.

Is there even a real way to prevent ddosing?


There aren't any really reliable ways.

Many DDoS attacks will take advantage of the quirky behaviors of certain protocols to starve resources on the server. The best example I know of exploits the TCP three-way handshake. The attacker sends a SYN packet, the server responds with SYN+ACK, but the attacker never returns an ACK packet. The server can't reliably drop the connection for another five seconds or so. In the meantime, there's a limit to the number of clients a TCP server can manage at a time, so by sending enough SYN packets to fake opening a connection, you can tie up the server so it's unable to add additional clients.

This type of attack can be protected against by creating firewall rules to block SYN packets from attackers. The SYN packets would never reach your TCP server because your firewall blocked them all. Unfortunately, you could potentially block some legitimate traffic this way as well (for instance, spoofing a legitimate user's IP or attacking from a zombie you placed on a legitimate user's system). Additionally, the packets are still making it to your router before your firewall can throw them out. An attacker could still be successful if they can manage to flood your router with enough packets that they don't need to starve the TCP server, but rather the router's resources.

There exist services you can subscribe to that help protect you against DDoS attacks. I think the basic approach is to have a server which monitors your network to look for signs of a DDoS. If one is found (typically within minutes), the server will take measures to start routing all of your network's traffic through a distributed network with enormous bandwidth and sophisticated pattern analysis to try and weed out the legitimate data from the illegitimate data so that the illegitimate data doesn't place any load on your servers.

I guess the takeaway is that the only real way to prevent a DDoS attack is to have more resources than can reasonably be attacked. Either that or overhaul the entire internet to make it more traceable.
